We always feel excited and grateful to travel to Israel. But earlier this month, preparing for the Hadassah Foundation’s study mission in Israel just days after a polarizing election, many of us on the board also felt a bit apprehensive.

Then we began meeting with the foundation’s grantees and witnessing firsthand their inspiring work — and our moods immediately lifted. The programs we fund are empowering women to launch businesses, take local and national leadership roles, make needed change at all levels of Israel’s society — and much more! The Israeli women we invest in are steadily building a more equitable and just society.

This work is more important than ever. That’s why five Hadassah Foundation leaders have come together to double our impact. Between now and December 31, your gift to the Hadassah Foundation will be matched dollar for dollar up to $54,000, thanks to commitments from Board Chair Roz Garber Toledano, Vice Chair Audrey Weiner, and Board Members Diane Sigel, Jacquie Bayley, and Sue Beller.

The Hadassah Foundation is one of the few philanthropies that focus on women and girls, investing in organizations whose work extends beyond direct services (which is critically important), but that address root challenges and seek to transform society. With more resources, these organizations could have an even greater impact.

Make your gift go twice as far. Donate today and double your impact.
